Celebrated on January 14th. This holiday is celebrated by restaurants the world over, which in turn offer special promotions for Hot Pastrami Sandwiches. The origins of the holiday are unknown.
Who created the Hot Pastrami Sandwich?
The credit for creating the first pastrami sandwich usually goes to New York's Sussman Volk in 1887. Volk was a kosher butcher and a New Yorker, who immigrated from Lituania. He claimed that the recipe came from a Romanian friend in exchange for keeping the friend's luggage while the friend stayed in Romania. Patricia Volk, a descendant of Sussman Volk, claimed Sussman used the receipe in his butcher shop and served it on sandwiches, and it became so popular that Volk changed the butcher shop into a restaurant which primarily sold pastrami sandwiches.
